IS THERE CONSCIOUS EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE? Dr. Jobe Martin Biblical Discipleship Ministries Rockwall, Texas
DOES ET. LIFE EXIST? • “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Isaiah 1:18 • Whose sins will be white as snow? • Answer: The sins of the race of Adam!
WHAT WAS HERE FIRST? • “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form (unformed), and void (unfilled), and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters…. And (two days later) God said… let the dry land appear.” Genesis 1:1,2,9b
EARTH WAS HERE FIRST! • Earth (totally covered with water) and heaven (totally empty space) being here first, totally eliminates the “Big Bang.” • On the fourth day of the creation week God filled the heavens with the sun, moon and stars to give light and to scream of the existence of the Creator (Psalm 19, Romans 1).
JESUS CHRIST IS THE CREATOR • “All things were made by him (Jesus); and without him was not anything made that was made.” John 1:3 • “For by him (Jesus) were all things creat- ed, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible.” Colossians 1:16 • God…hath…spoken unto us by his son (Jesus), by whom also he made the world. Hebrews1:1a,2b
EARTH IS THE CENTER OF GOD’S REDEMPTIVE PLAN • Jesus, the Creator (Jn.1, Col. 1, Heb 1), came to planet earth,no where else, to take the penalty (by His death on the cross) for the sins of the race of Adam. • Jesus’ death was a one-time event: “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us (Adam’s race) to God.”1 Peter 3:18a
JESUS’ DEATH WAS A ONE-TIME EVENT! • “…but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many….” Hebrews 9:26b-28a • “…we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” Hebrews 10:10
JESUS IS RISEN FROM THE DEAD!!! • “But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.” 1 Corinthians 15:20-22 • Jesus Christ died and came back to life to save the race of Adam on planet earth from eternal judgment for their sins!!!
EXTRATERRESTRIALS: ARE THEY OUT THERE? • The Biblical answer is: No they are not! • God put the earth here first. • God put Adam and his race on earth. • “For all (of Adam’s race) have sinned….” • Jesus Christ: virgin-born on earth only. • Jesus died for the sin of Adam’s race only • Jesus died once (and only eternally once).
EXTRATERRESTRIALS: ARE THEY OUT THERE? • Extraterrestrial conscious life cannot be out there. Jesus would have to go out there and die again (impossible) for their sin. • The earth and Adam’s race are the center of God’s redemptive plan. • Life out there=angels or demons (UFO’S)
GOD’S REDEMPTIVE PLAN: • To send His Creator Son, the Lord Jesus, toearth to die and take the penalty for the sins of the race of Adam. (Creator=Savior) • “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
MAN’S RESPONSIBILITY • “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Romans 10:9 • “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8,9
